Are you aware of recent article by Dr. Harvey Risch (Yale Epidemiologist) about use of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin or doxycycline on covid-19 outpatients with obesity and co-morbidities? Would be interested in your take on his article.

This is the article: https://kopernio.com/viewer?doi=10.1093%2Faje%2Fkwaa093&token=WzYyNjE1OSwiMTAuMTA5My9hamUva3dhYTA5MyJd.wKH_IxTBRYT8MbKwb6j3mN4O6p4

Frankly I find his reasoning pretty weak and if we have learned anything it is that we need real data. The data he quotes is pretty crappy. We should soon get the HERO study of 15,000 health care workers randomaized, blinded. placebo controlled, then we will have something to talk about.
